Chesterfield is a busy market town lying to the south east east of the Peak District National Park, 24 miles to the north of Derby and 11 miles south of Sheffield. The town lies along the west side of the M1, 5 miles from J29 via the A617 dual carriageway link, and the A619 to J30. There are excellent train services across the country with a shortest journey time of 1 hour 45 minutes to London, as well as direct services to Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Penzance.

Chesterfield is also a proposed HS2 stop, and extensive regeneration of the town is planned as a result, including the £340m mixed-use Chesterfield Waterside development.

The property occupies a prominent block upon the edge of the town centre, fronting Malkin Street, and facing the main rail station. The property lies alongside and overlooking the A61 with a pedestrian footbridge link into the centre. The hotel car park is currently on a temporary letting, and there is an aerial tower on the roof. The proposed Chesterfield Waterside scheme will lie opposite the property.




Informal planning guidance indicates that the property could be suited to a variety or mix of uses in the future that encompass business, leisure, residential and entertainment, including restaurant, events venue, sports facilities, hotel, studios, offices as well as student or private residential. Interested parties should satisfy themselves prior to bidding that they have made all reasonable inquiries.
